I don’t see the point of having any territory at zero IPCs.
If its on the map, it should be worth at least 1
I rather see a lot of spots worth zero IPCs, after all a lot of Africa was not really worth much industrial production at all. It was more of Italy trying to remake the Roman Empire.
Honestly I think Africa needs to have over twice the amount of areas and those extra areas should be worthless. Africa is the second biggest continent, yet I can transport tanks and units accross it very quickly. I rather see it become more divided, and the sahara removed. With more zones going south just waste time and be point less unless you are trying to out move your enemy.
